Alland is always quite busy in the studio working hard on his own unique take on electronic dance music for his own Nightlight Music imprint and many other labels. In 2006 Alland founded ElektrUS. This private forum is made specifically to increase European interest in the American minimal techno / tech-house scene. By providing a simple, central and easy means of communication, ElektrUS streamlines the booking process and maximizes the productivity of tour booking ventures.
The hope is to make the US a more fun and respectable place for the techno community, and a more profitable venture for European talent and agents. This forum was a large part of successful US techno bookings in 2007 and 2008, and is set to help more in the coming years. Not only is Alland a resident, graphic designer and A&R for what is arguably the States’ most respected and notorious techno night, [KONTROL], he is also booked regularly as the opening act for influences such as Superpitcher, Trentemøller, Michael Mayer, Booka Shade, M.A.N.D.Y., Swayzak, Miss Kittin, Modeselektor, Claude VonStroke, Jeff Samuel, Heartthrob, Redshape, Ambivalent and many others. Alland has quickly grown to be one of the most in-demand Techno talents that SF has to offer. Among many great parties, 2007 saw Alland performing live at Seattle‘s Decibel Festival and DJing at Lovefest in San Francisco.
In 2008 Alland played a fantastic DJ set on the Beatport Stage at the Detroit Electronic Music Festival (DEMF Movement), a DJ performance at Decibel 2008, and played a successful European tour including gigs at such world famous clubs as Panoramabar in Berlin and Propoganda Moscow. His recent tour of Europe saw him play rockin sets and building goodwill at such illustrious clubs as Harry Klein, Week End club, Uebel & Gefährlich, Kubik Hamburg and Cyprus' infamous Klub D. And now with his full-length album Brick By Brick due out this summer it’s obvious that the future looks bright for both him and his label, Nightlight Music. Read more on Last.fm.
